He is 100 ft above ground level while Ana is still in her tent 60 feet from the base of the mountain. What is the angle of elevation in which Ana's eyes will see Ricky climbing the mountain?


1B) Ana finally decides to wake up to catch up to Ricky and they both then climb to the top of the mountain which is 215 ft above ground level. They are so high above that they can see their tent from a 30 degree angle of depression. What is the horizontal distance above ground from the top of the mountain to the tent?
